Access to starting point:
A) Access from Tolmin: From Tolmin we drive towards Kobarid and on newly built bypass road which on the right side bypasses Kobarid we drive straight towards the center. Only a little before the center of Kobarid road branches off to the left towards the village Svino. The turn-off is marked! We follow this road to the spot, where it starts ascending. We park on a parking lot by the road. If we continue driving to the village Svino we didn't gain anything because there isn't possible to park.
B) Access from Bovec: From Bovec, we drive towards Kobarid and when we come to bypass road past Kobarid we turn right in the center of Kobarid. In the center of Kobarid road branches off to the right towards the border crossing Robič. Here we continue straight (slightly left) towards Tolmin but only few ten meters to the spot, where the road branches off to the right in the village Svino. Further, follow the upper description.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we continue on the road by which we've parked. After a good five minutes of walking, we come in the village Svino, where we notice signs for Matajur left, and Sužid right. Here we continue left among houses with unnoticeable signs for Matajur. If we aren't sure which path is right it is better to ask someone, if we have this option. Correct path goes a little more left and soon past houses runs over pastures after which the path goes into the forest. Ahead are blazes more frequent and also orientation is easier.
The path then starts ascending steeper and after approximately half an hour of walking, it brings us on a wider cart track which comes from the village Sužid. Further, we are ascending for some time on a cart track which has quite a few crossings, but the path is well marked. Before decaying old military cottage path on Matajur points us left upwards. Here cart the track changes into steep military mule track, which on a quite steep slope brings us on less steep slopes. The path then brings us to new forest road which we only cross. On the other side of the road, we ascend few steps and in front of us, we notice a shepherd hut on the mountain pasture Svinska planina.
On the mountain pasture, we notice signs left mountain pasture Idrsko, right mountain pasture Sužid. There isn't any signs for Matajur but the path towards Matajur is marked.
We look for the path among cottages on the mountain pasture and ahead it runs throug smaller indistinct valley moderately upwards. Despite the path being marked it is in parts poorly visible and in some parts overgrown. After approximately 15 minutes of walking from the mountain pasture we come to water tank and nearby we notice mountain signposts. Here we go straight in the direction of Matajur on still poorly visible but marked footpath. The path then runs over overgrown meadow after which we join nicely beaten path, which comes from the village Avsa or Livek.
We continue right and the path which is moderately ascending then soon brings us to the next signposts, where we continue left upwards in the direction of Matajur. And only few steps ahead we come on the border ridge between Slovenia and Italy. Here the path turns right and then it is ascending on a wide gentle ridge. This path which leads us with increasingly beautiful views we follow to the top of Matajur, which we already see in front of us.
